Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse this site, you are agreeing to our Cookie Policy.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age is an independent table top miniature wargame set in a fantasy world, in which players take control of armies and set them upon one another in conflicts ranging from minor skirmishes to mighty battles with hundreds of models.

The game and all of its rules are completely free to download and use, and consist of a main rulebook and over fifteen army documents, ranging from stoic men and noble elves to the feral orcs and dread worshipers of the dark gods. You can easily assemble your own army using appropriate 28mm miniatures from any manufacturer.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age has been created by a group of experienced wargamers, a large supportive staff and continuous input from the wargaming community. We aim to provide a competitive, balanced and fun game, with updates and new rules to be released regularly.

We’ve created 16 unique armies from the Dread Elves in the west to the Ogre Khans in the east. Each army has different units and playstyles and can be represented by models from any 28mm model company. People said it was impossible, but we have created a game that is both balanced and fun. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourselves.

Happy wargaming.

    I do not understand why moderators 'disable' posts with the reason that the post will 'remain inaccessible for others until approved by a moderator' - the person who disabled it IS a moderator.

    I'm glad its locked, the MODs are just doing their job. Post racist BS, expect consequences its not hard.

    Yeah, I'm not talking about the racist stuff - which of course should have been and was removed. I'm talking about another post.

    I just missed all of it. I logged in to a a locked meme thread and like a page of deleted posts... Wasn't doubting the mods.

    But a locked meme thread still get's a frowny face, even when locked for good reasons.

    Guards and archers are something I miss, archers are mostly fine though, especially if we keep having a bunch of SE in the meta. Guards... Need a lot of love, more healing/defence/point cost reduction, atleast 2 of those to be good.(or extremely cheap)

    The Vermin Demon has a base noted as 75x50mm. I've put mine on a base with a front side of 50mm because as far as I know, any shorter side of a base should be either its front or its back, like standard cavalry bases. Right? It turns out that the VD is…
